First Church Seattle Update

First Church SeattleReceived a project update from First Church this afternoon. The Capitol Hill church-to-condo conversion is on schedule with work on the interior progressing. When completed in the first half of 2009, the church will be home to 12 multi-level luxury townhome units centered around the church’s dome.

The two-bedroom homes, which span 3 to 5 levels, range in size from 1,109 sq ft to 2,269 sq ft. For more detailed info, floor plans are now available on the projects website:

Pricing information and home sale release will take place later this Summer. Though, individual units have been sold as raw shells.

    Wow. Such. Horrible. Floor Plans. I can’t imagine walking up and down four flights of stairs. Resale on these will be difficult since empty nesters won’t even look at such units.

  2. Ben_Kakimoto says:

    Well, no design is going to appeal to everyone, though two buyers liked it enough to purchase shells. Fortunately, I don’t think empty nesters are the demographic this project is aiming for.

    Were the two buyers that liked it enough perhaps the developer or friends and family of the developer?

    I can’t disagree with the MD. I love the concept behind saving such a historic building. But I’m curious as to whether the indoor atrium will be utilized at all by the owners. And the very vertical nature of the floor plans reminds me of the shoe-horned-in designs of the oft-criticized townhomes we see dotting the Seattle landscape.

    The rooms are bigger than those townhomes, but I find a lot of steps, doorways or angled walls leads to far less truly usable space than one might think – based on “traffic patterns” (i.e. where people need to work).

    I do not understand the negativity that this project is getting. I really like the idea of it. I wish that Houston did more of this type of stuff. I grew up in the northwest and always really liked the funky use of real estate. Redevelopment of old warehouses in Portland in the Pearl District worked out like magic. I sure do miss the Northwest summers. But, never could get use to not seeing the sun for 3 months at a time in the winter. Hey Ben you should add the plug in that allows for you to sign up for comments to your email.

    Any news on procing. Also, anyone know of ahistorically significant work/live conversion? Also, have a great 1892 restored Methodist church building for sale in Covington, KY. Was my former live art studio.

    I LOVE the floorplans. I would buy one of these in a skinny minute. Here’s hoping the current housing situation makes these affordable.
